Summary of our market study

The global dental implant and prosthesis market is growing steadily, with an expectation to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2022 to 2028, with the market value projected to rise from an estimated $5.74 billion in 2022 to $8.91 billion by 2028. The market is driven by several factors, including the aging population, increased disposable income, a rise in dental caries cases, and advancements in cosmetic dentistry. Moreover, dental tourism, supported by globalization, has allowed patients in developed countries to seek affordable dental care in emerging nations. Despite the robust growth, the French dental prosthesis market has seen minimal growth and a reduced number of employees. France's dental market, while also dealing with the challenges of international competition and CAD innovations, has shown some resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic with a catch-up mechanism in 2021 and 2022 after initial postponements of dental treatments and the curb on dental tourism. The national market for medical, surgical, and dental equipment manufacturing in France continued its growth trajectory to reach 9.19 billion euros in 2022, with an annual growth rate of 2.93%. Dental care consumption in France saw a significant 22.5% increase in value in 2021 compared to the previous year, reaching 13.9 billion euros. The French sector is however facing production challenges with around a 7.4% decrease in companies and an 8.3% increase in employees from 2016 to 2022, suggesting a market consolidation and competitiveness constraints. Dental tourism remains a factor for the French market, impacting both demand and production dynamics.

Evolving Trends in the Dental Implant and Prosthesis Market

The dental implant and prosthesis market in France is experiencing a dynamic interplay of growth and challenges. The sector is witnessing a steady climb in global market projections. This promising trajectory is underscored by consistent advancements and innovations by key manufacturers. Dental implants, crucial for replacing natural roots in jawbones, and the accompanying prostheses, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures, are moving towards diversification. This trend implies that manufacturers are not just focusing on implants but also branching out into imaging, orthodontics, and CAD (Computer-Aided Design) to streamline and internationalize production processes.

Demand analysis indicates significant factors propelling the market. Among them, an aging population in developed countries presents a prominent customer base; between 2019 and 2050, the number of elderly people is projected to hike from approximately 90.5 million to 130 million. Additionally, the rise in disposable incomes allows more individuals to afford these dental solutions. The prevalence of dental caries due to changing diets, along with the cosmetics industry's influence on dental aesthetic standards, further bolsters demand. In France, the domestic dental prostheses market encounters slow growth with a subtle decline in workforce numbers. However, the larger domain of manufacturing medical, surgical, and dental equipment has shown resilient growth despite a slight downturn during the pandemic.

On the international stage, North America leads in market share, but European countries like Italy and Germany are pivotal players, with a robust number of prosthetic labs and technicians. Asia-Pacific is a fast-growing contender, likely to exceed Europe in market share in the foreseeable future. French manufacturers face international competition and the growing phenomenon of 'dental tourism', where individuals opt for cheaper services outside the country. The increasing popularity of CAD contributes to this by enabling international production capabilities. Furthermore, healthcare reforms and reimbursement policies deeply influence the market dynamics.

Particularly in France, the dental implant market was significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic as treatments were deferred. Nevertheless, travel restrictions might have curtailed dental tourism, potentially benefiting domestic services. France's import and export data reflect a robust trade in dental appliances and implants, noting a considerable negative trade balance. Most notably, French imports of dental prostheses and artificial teeth rose significantly from between €10 and €15 billion in 2017 to between €35 millions in the last years.

Summary and extracts

1 Market overview

1.1 Study scope and definition

The dental implant and prosthesis market encompasses the manufacture, distribution and fitting of devices designed to restore and re-establish the functionality and aesthetics of the dentition.

Dental implants are artificial metal roots implanted in the jawbone to replace natural roots. They require a prosthetic abutment, which connects the implant to the dental crown. Different types of implant are possible, such as endosseous, subperiosteal and zygomatic. Dental implant manufacturers mainly serve hospitals and dental clinics. The global market for dental implants is growing steadily, and is expected to continue expanding by 5% a year until 2028 . The French market, also growing, is concentrated around a few major manufacturers who supply the majority of implants to practitioners. A major trend in the sector is the diversification of implant manufacturers into areas such as imaging and orthodontics. This strategy aims to become a preferred partner for dental practices.

At the same time, the market for dental prostheses also aims to restore the functionality and aesthetics of the dentition. Various types of dentures are available, including metal, synthetic resin, ceramic and zirconia. Fixed prostheses are the most common on the market, followed by removable prostheses, but laboratories are increasingly diversifying their activities and expertise. This market involves the laboratories that design the prostheses, the dental practices that are their customers, and the end patients . In France, the dental prostheses market has seen virtually zero growth for several years, with a decline in the number of employees.

French players in these 2 markets face common challenges. The first is international competition, which is at the root of medical tourism. Services can be provided at lower cost in certain European countries, prompting the French to travel outside France to access cheaper services. The development of CAD (Computer-Aided Design ) is also contributing to theindustrialization of prosthesis manufacturing processes, and thus to the internationalization of prosthesis production.

Secondly, the market for dental implants and prostheses is closely linked to healthcare reforms and reimbursement conditions, which strongly influence supply and demand.
